New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul suffered serious damage to his hand in a Fourth of July fireworks mishap last year, but that apparently hasn't deterred other athletes from playing with explosives.

During a Fourth of July party at his home in Los Angeles, Lakers guard Nick Young picked up a tube with a lit artillery shell inside of it, which then exploded in his hand, according to TMZ Sports.

Fortunately, Young wasn't injured.
